Income: 5000 pounds
Debt: About maybe 9 million pounds? IN BOLD RED INK

And how does Robert Harley handle this? By promptly creating one of the ludicrous and frankly outrageous economic schemes in history, the South Sea's Bubble, headed by a man named John Blunt, who owns the Hollow Sword Blade Company and only cares about profit.

I'll post what happens next if you guys are interested

The dead of night, City of Gorkassk

It has been said throughout history, that the military of a nation is its best and worst tools. Sure, you could make the worlds sharpest knife. But what happens when it is turned against you?

Officers from multiple units of the Gorkassk National Army had met in secret. They had not been swayed by the National Representatives speech. They were not even truly dedicated communists, but instead? Spies. Sent into Gorkassk following The Great Collapse. These men were loyal to one man, King Umberto of Western Vapia. Their objective was simple, Kill the National Representative, and all who stand before them.

"Comrades, now is the time we show our loyalty to our true homeland. Down with the National Representative!"
~Commander Mikhail, Officer Coup Leader.

The National Government Control Zone, the area of operation for the National Government's daily operations in Gorkassk City, was quiet. It was 2am, so it was to be expected. The officers, along with their units, slowly advanced upon the National Council building, and after bribing/threatening the few security personnel to their side, the building was occupied.

Just down the road was the Residence of the National Representative. The National Representative Security Detail would not be bribed or threatened, the officers knew. Their only option was force. They decided on brute and swift action. The officers units ran towards the Residence, opening fire on all visible security. The alarm sounded shortly after, waking the National Representative from her slumber.

Ada knew she was in danger, all to obvious from the ear splitting gun fire. She quickly got out of bed, threw on any clothes she could, and ran. She was met with a security guard, who quickly escorted her through the building, avoiding detection. Until....

"Quickly madam, down the stairs to the escape tunnel." said the security guard. The two moved quickly, as the enemy gunfire grew closer, and then fell silent. Right behind them. Down the spiral stairs at lightning pace. They reached the end, and practically barreled through the door. Before them laid a large tunnel, and a car that was able to fit in it. Ada entered the passenger seat, while the guard entered the drivers seat. Suddenly, the door behind them swung open again, and a soldier came into view, and fired upon the car. The car was bulletproof however, so the two managed to escape.

However, this was a hollow victory.

"Commander, the National Representative has escaped."
~Reporting soldier

"No matter. If we inform the world she is dead, we can demoralize our enemies and affirm our control."
~Commander Mikhail.

The National Council Building, 30 minutes later.

Live in 3....2......1....

"Hello, my name is Mikhail. You do not know me, but you will. I am your liberator, the man who will bring this nation up from its ashes. Your former master, National Representative Ada is no more. At the hands of brave men who knew they had to do what was right, ended her evil lease on life. Today, I announce to the world, that I am declaring myself the NEW National Representative of Gorkassk, and with the power invested in me as the SOLE member of the government, I declare that from this day forward, Gorkassk pledges loyalty to the Vapian Empire, and His Majesty, King Umberto The Second!"

Mihkail stands and salutes the camera, the broadcast ends with the Vapian national anthem playing.

The broadcast ending was the signal. By the time of the broadcast end, the majority of the standing Gorkassk National Army, under the influence of the conspirators, occupied the City of Gorkassk, with plans to further occupy the rest of the nation.

"A concerning development, especially considering the rich history of the Confederal Communes of Puczovska."
A statement from the Federal Government.

"We in the Kingdom of Vapia take this very seriously. For a long time ally, which we have supported since our founding, to suddenly betray our friendship is unacceptable. If it is our nation you wish to dig your grave in, then so be it."

Major News Announcement
The Imperial Federation is no more. Kaiserin Victoria II has seen to it that it is dismantled. Seven days ago she rallied forces loyal to her, and her alone after a forceful attempt to make her give up the throne occured. What happened next was the execution of a plan, as German storm troopers burst into government buildings and stormed the Bundestag. Those within were arrested on the grounds of treason as the republican forces battled it out in the streets everywhere, offering what resistance they could as the loyalist forces drove them into submission.

Following what was then called the August Coup and the “Two Day War”, the nation quickly became quiet as fighting ceased, as the last republican forces were mopped up. What followed was the shuttering of freedoms and civil rights as the now resurgent Victoria II refashioned herself as the Militärdiktator of the Militärstaat, as name and title not heard of in decades. Now, the Imperial Federation has become a Military Junta, and found itself an authoritarian regime, as it ruthlessly suppressed and destroyed any opposition to the new Militärdiktator.

So far, the government is to be reorganized, as the nation has yet to fully transition as democratic institutions, while empty and devoid of their officials, still exist and remain a powerful force and rallying point. Only for them to be reformed can the opposition truly be defeated.

Now the Militärstaat waits with a bated breath on how the international community will react to the radical change in politics, especially the northern neighbor, East Supple Lund
